Hi forum members,
I am newbie to this forum and have been using Windows 7 64 Bit ultimate for almost 2-3 months. I have noticed this strange slow boot ups(randomly once in 3 or 4 days) during cold boot or restart. The system seems to hang up at the Windows 7 splash screen, but on the contrary its not hanged. The system is taking its own sweet time to boot up to the start up screen.
During a normal boot up my Razer Lycosa and Lachesis backlights would go off for few seconds and lights up as soon windows 7 start up screen appears. But during the random slow boots I have noticed that the backlight of Razer Lycosa stays on for 2-3 mins before Windows 7 start up screen appears. Another strange thing that I've noticed was the ticking sound on my Logitech Clearchat USB headset during the random slow boot. The ticking sound appears every 3 seconds during the slow boot. What could be the problem guys? Is it because of Hardware or corrupt system files. FYI, I have Razer Lachesis, Lycosa, HP 3500 Deskjet Printer and Logitech USB Headset connected to the USB ports. Logitech USB headset is connected to the USB port of Razer Lycosa.
I have recently flashed my MOBO to see if it was because of the BIOS, but the problem persists even after flashing.
Any suggestions members. I would really appreciate your help on this.
